So in talking to geico, they only have the DCT option, or at least that's all they had when I called a couple weeks ago. So even though the two bikes are $2k in difference, the quote was the same for both bikes.
However if I wanted to add a $500 accessory to the base bike (still less in value than the DCT option) it's quote would've been higher than a DCT bike.
I somewhat understand the logic being that the accessory is more likely to be damaged in a tip over, or more likely to be stolen, etc, but overall it's tough to compute that a $7k bike would be the same per month as the same bike with $2k more in parts & technology built into it...
